#2. Indians and the City of Cleveland agree on construction of new stadium on Cleveland’s west side
The Indians are waiting patiently for the final decision on whether or not the sin tax will be extended in order to make the necessary improvements to Progressive Field. However, in this strange turn of events, the city and the team take a page out of the Braves playbook and agree to scrap Progressive Field all together in order build a new, state of the art facility on Cleveland’s west side. The first wave of reaction would revolve around the decision to tear down a 20-year-old facility in order to build a new one. Most fans would probably hate that and see it as a tremendous waste of time and money. The next wave of reactions would involve the east side/west side rivalry that exists between Cleveland’s two halves. This would be minor to anyone who has never lived in Cleveland, but to those who have ever called Cleveland home, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
